Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.

You Delight A Satellite

I got your favorite planet in my pocket

But it ain't the one you pay attention to.

I got the one that has the hue of a large chunk of amber
hold it to yours and you can see the frozen past
You keep staring at the ones that some deem official
while I keep the chiseled chunks of fallen stars
and once bright meteorites

I use a telescope in measured sight
you gravitate to moissanite
It's the measure of who you are
identify your fallen star


Sometimes when you pick them up the dust crumbles thru your fingertips
and reform earth

even though they ain't from here.

Keep them watchful eyes to corner skies
to monitor the rise and fall of moonbeams and ultra violet rays
as I manage the dust

It's so hard to do that under the warming vibes of the sun
and the map yielding light of the one satellite 
you've always held dear

I have those now to watch over and guide me.

You delight a satellite
and dance within its vaunted rays
every day I make my way
by the light, your constant play
I close my eyes and feel your rays
when darkness falls you pave my way

Your light a constant warmth for me,
The only way I truly see.

I miss my sister and equity partner in all things creative as well realizing how much my brother from another mother misses his missus.
